Owls Increase Wage Budget

Owls Increase Wage Budget

Wednesday boss Brian Laws is set to get a bigger budget to spend on wages next season - with or without investment.

The Owls are one of the lowest spenders in the Championship when it comes to wages, and are in the bottom four in the division, but all that's set to change for the 2009-10 campaign.

The club are set to get extra income from television rights, and have also planned to boost their income through other methods to give the Owls' gaffer extra money to spend to bolster his squad.

Chief executive Nick Parker told the Sheffield Star: 'We have identified revenue streams which will improve our incomes, with the majority of these funds being directed into the playing budget.

Laws has already revealed that he has one eye on next season and has already started his search for new players for next season.

But the cash is also set to be used to keep key players at the club with improved contracts, such as in-demand youngsters Tommy Spurr and Mark Beevers.

The boost in cash to splash on wages will come regardless of whether the club are successful in bringing new investment into S6 before the start of the new campaign in August.

But chairman Lee Strafford has assured Owls fans that the club are doing all they can to secure extra investment - and give Laws even more cash to help him mount a charge for the Championship play-offs next term.
